Itinerary

  • Day 1: Overnight Flight

    Board your overnight flight, bound for Europe.

  • Day 2: Travel to Amsterdam + Welcome Dinner

    Continue via train on to Amsterdam. There’s so much to love about Amsterdam, from the canals to the Van Gogh to the legendary laid-back attitude. Home of the famous Red Light District and a population that consists of more bikes than people, Amsterdam is one-of-a-kind.

    Introduction to Amsterdam
    Your tour director will take you on a quick walk so you can get to know the area.

    In the evening, enjoy a Welcome Dinner of local cuisine and drinks with fellow travelers at an authentic local spot. Afterwards, you’re free to take the party elsewhere!

  • Day 3: Sightseeing Tour of Amsterdam + Optional Countryside Bike Tour

    Get a feel for the city’s history and unique culture as you walk through busy Dam Square. Then take in scenic views of the Amstel River before finishing up in Rembrandtplein, a bustling square packed with outdoor cafés, shops, and clubs.

    Dutch Countryside Bike Tour (extra cost)

    Bike like a local into the stunning Dutch countryside. Ride through rural landscapes past picturesque windmills and 17th century villages, then enjoy pancakes and a drink in the quaint Waterland region by the sea.

    Why wait? Save money by booking this optional excursion before your trip departs.

  • Day 4: Free Day in Amsterdam

    Free time suggestions

    Van Gogh Museum: Get lost in this goldmine of paintings by the troubled artist, including many of his most famous.
    Bike riding: Do as the Dutch do and explore the streets on a bicycle; you can find rental shops all over town.
    Vondelpark: Relax on the grass, hang out by the pond, or toss a frisbee.

    For more ideas and details, see our Lonely Planet city guide for Amsterdam.

    New Year's Eve
    Celebrate New Year's Eve in Amsterdam! Tonight is yours to do as you please. Party with fellow travelers and locals as you count down to the best year yet.

  • Day 5: Train to Paris

    Head to Paris! The French capital is visited by more than 30 million people a year, drawn by the famous monuments, great food, and some of the world’s best art museums. Paris is comprised of 20 districts, or arrondissements, so there’s plenty of diversity and personality to discover.

    Bonjour! Welcome to Paris.
    Upon arrival, head to your accommodation and drop your bags. Your Tour Director will take you on a quick walk to orient you with the area and point out some incredible landmarks.

    Evening Seine Cruise and Eiffel Tower
    Float past Notre Dame Cathedral and under some of Paris’ famous bridges, then visit the most iconic tower in the world as its dazzling lights sparkle with the setting sun.

  • Day 6: Sightseeing Tour of Paris + Optional Trip to Versailles

    Enjoy a combination bus/walking tour of Paris’ top highlights. Your expert local guide will tell you all about the city as you see its most well-known sights.

    Your guide will also take you off the beaten path to some of Paris’ more authentic arrondissements, and give you the inside scoop on Parisian culture. Get to know the fashionistas, eccentric royals, epic revolutionaries, bougie bourgeoisie, and enlightened intellectuals that shaped the City of Light.

    Free time suggestions

    Edit Sober: Visit the cafe haunts of literary giants like Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce and many others.
    Fall in Louvre: Paris is home to some of the world’s most incredible art collections. Head to The Louvre and Musee d’Orsay. The Louvre displays art from before the 18th century, and houses the Mona Lisa herself. The Orsay is your place for modern art.
    Latin Quarter: Around the Sorbonne, the bars and clubs here are open late and frequented by locals and travelers alike.

  • Day 7: Free Day in Paris

    Today is yours to explore! Paris is immense, yet intimate. While it can be overwhelming at first, there’s a bounty of hidden gems around every corner.

    Free time suggestions

    Go Subterranean: The Paris catacombs are dark, underground crypts where the city’s dead have been buried for centuries.
    Bon Appétit: French food is some of the finest in the world. Demanding customers, meticulous preparation and the freshest ingredients combine for an unparalleled culinary experience. Parisians eat dinner late between 8 and 10pm, so plan accordingly.
    C’est Magnifique!: Head to Montmartre, a neighborhood filled with street art, incredible views overlooking the city and the famous Sacré Cœur Cathedral. This is the perfect place to take a stroll, grab lunch and admire a more authentic side of Paris.

  • Day 8: Eurostar Train to London

    Ride a high-speed train under the English Channel to London. What can you say about London? It’s huge, it’s multi-cultural, and it’s brimming with famous sights, fun pubs, great music venues and endless things to do.

    Introduction to London
    Your tour director will take you on a quick walk so you can get to know the area.

    Sightseeing Tour of London (Local Guide)
    Hit the Sightseeing tour of London with a licensed local guide giving you all the inside info. Most of the tour will be on a bus ride around the city—you'll see the famous sights like Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace. You'll also get a chance to walk around and explore on foot. If you're lucky you might even catch the Changing of the Guard, a classic London moment.

  • Day 9: Free Day in London + Optional London Eye & River Cruise

    Free time suggestions

    Comedy Store: Laugh till you can't anymore at the heart and soul of the UK comedy scene.
    Fabric: A huge underground dance club with three dance floors, plus some mellower spaces.
    Shepherd's Bush Empire: This popular medium-sized music venue has hosted the likes of Björk, Cold War Kids and Cee Lo Green.

    For more ideas and details, see our Lonely Planet city guide for London.

    London Eye & Tea (extra cost)

    Fly high on the London Eye: Europe’s tallest Ferris wheel, providing panoramic views of all the iconic landmarks. Then, for a more traditional English experience, you’ll enjoy some tea & crumpets.

    This excursion is pre-book only; if your trip is less than fourteen days away, please call 800-766-2645 to purchase.

  • Day 10: Farewell Dinner

    Share some last laughs (and maybe shed a few tears) at an included farewell dinner with the group.

  • Day 11: Fly Home

    Cheers, mates!
    Your next destination awaits—home. Before you head to the airport, enjoy your last few moments together. Take one more group photo. Grab that final drink. (Fine, maybe a couple of drinks.) But this isn’t goodbye. It’s “See you later.” The only question is, where?
